Adapted from the novel by Willy Vautin, Lean On Pete tells the story of 15 year old Charley Thompson (Charlie Plummer) and his adopted racehorse, Lean On Pete. As the son of a casually employed single father, he dreams of a new start in a summer job with a washed-up horse trainer where he befriends Lean On Pete. Andrew Haigh (45 years at BOFA 2014) focuses on this makeshift hobo family as it zig zags from one racetrack to another. But tensions are mounting; Pete's time is up and Charlie can't let him go. So, he absconds with the horse under the cover of darkness! Lean On Pete is a must-see for anyone who loves animals and the wide-open skies of north-west USA
